Quick to listen,Slow to speak, Slow to anger

  1. 1. God Is Good To All! James 1:17-18 • That God is good to all, is more powerful than most realize. •We are special to God. •Since we are so blessed and special, as God’s people we should learn how God wants us to behave. •The facts of guidance in these verses will help any who heeds them to live better.
  2. 2. How We Are To Interact With Others… James 1:19 •Many if not all people problems can be fixed by doing these three things. •Most folks don’t do these things that God is instructing us to do here. This is what causes so many broken relationships. •Let us work to insure that we do not violate God’s law in these things.
  3. 3. As Beloved Brethren We Must First Be Quick To Listen! •Too many have been divided by a failure to do this. 1 Cor. 1:10; 2:16; 3:1-3 •This means we must get all the facts before we make a decision on a matter. Prov. 18:13; Jn.7:51 •May it never be said of you that you are dull of hearing. Heb. 5:11 •Therefore, pay attention and do not jump to conclusions. Lk. 8:18
  4. 4. Secondly, We Must Be Slow To Speak! •If we speak without thinking properly and not having the right information we can do much harm. 1 Tim. 6:3-4; Phil. 4:8; Proverbs 16:27-28 •We must think before we speak! Proverbs 15:23, 28 •Thus, we must use proper wisdom in our thinking before we speak! James 3:17-18; Col. 4:6
  5. 5. Thirdly, We Must Be Slow To Wrath! •Why? Because the wrath of man DOES NOT produce the righteousness of God! Jas. 1:20 •We must be righteous! 1 Jn. 3:7 •Jesus was slow to wrath. Luke 9:54-56; Psalm 103:8 •We must be this way too! Proverbs 15:18; 16:32 •Deal with your anger quickly and rightly. Ephesians 4:26-27; Psalm 37:8; Colossians 3:8
  6. 6. Finale: •Let us behave like God’s people and develop strong relationships and proper communication by being, quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to wrath! •Are you in need of prayer? James 5:16 •Are you in need of salvation? 1 Cor. 15:3-4 •Hear and believe the gospel. Rom. 1:16 •Repent of sin. Acts 2:38 •Confess Christ. Acts 8:37 •Be baptized to be saved. Acts 22:16
